Yesterday at my radiation appointment they spent a little extra time getting me ready for my "boost" treatments. This is where they isolate the tumor bed for treatment rather than the whole breast. I guess when the surgeon removes the tumor there is a possibility that a cancer cell could get stuck on the surrounding skin and so my last 6 treatments will focus only on the tumor site where tissue was removed. They drew a little road map of this on my body - which will remain until I am finished. This helps them know exactly where to treat. I am getting SO CLOSE to being done! I only have 7 more treatments!
While I was waiting for my turn this morning, the lady before me came walking into the waiting area. She was an elderly lady who was wearing a wig that looked like a headband with sparkly, white hair poofing out the top. That was one spunky grandma. I loved it!
Why cry when you can laugh?!
